As noted by other reviewers the location is very good (although a little noisy at the restaurant). No problem in the rooms however. We got a warm and friendly welcome, but then that's really a standard thing in Philippines. The shower was good (in terms of pressure) but the water was cold (see below). I am not sure why this hotel is ranked "'Fabulous" -its a long way from that.....
7 things we weren't impressed with: a) the internet was really poor (in our room at least) (1.5mb down, 0.4 up)....not sure where the wifi access points are, but they really need to be in a better place (unless its just the lonely one in the office area) b) tried to have a shower about 8pm after a long day out and about - cold water only. Went to the office and they somewhat sheepishly admitted to having turned it off so then we had to wait for an hour for that to come back on. c) no one seemed to be in a hurry to pick rubbish up - the dirty breakfast dishes from one family were still sitting by the pool at 3pm in the afternoon d) We had a late afternoon flight so tried to get an late checkout at 2pm (ie 2 hours) - for that the office wanted to charge me an outrageous 300p per hour...needless to say we passed up on that. Never had that happen in any of 5 previous trips to the Phils. 5) breakfast was ok - had to ask for butter for toast (every morning), jam supplied barely covered the bottom of the supplied container, so you really got the impression they were giving you the absolute minimum required. 6) No kettle - just of hot water (but how long does that last for? Not very). 8) No wardrobe or anywhere to hang your clothes! The first for any hotel I have ever stayed in....:-)
The central location in the city, Molo area. Pleasant secluded place with the rooms around a nice swimming pool. Pleasant and quiet rooms with adequate facilities. Nice breakfast to order among various choices, you can take near the swimming pool.
Nothing to dislike about the stay. Problem to mention in the booking process, when the hotel requested a bank transfer to secure the booking, I have disagreed to do.
Pool was nice
Was next to a high school which was very loud all night
A little oasis that I definitely will revisited if I’m back in Iloilo. All the staff are lovely which made the place feel homely. I was invited to the Christmas party and drinks which opened my eyes to how hospitable the Filipino people are. Loved it!
Our family came in with full assistance with all the staffs and even the guards all of them are very helpful even the receptionist Tin was so nice she always smile a lot all of them are doing great they love their job got a five star rating for this property :)
